According to a report filed by The Jasmine Brand, Ne-Yo and his wife for 4 years, Crystal, have separated.
They have reportedly been having issues for quite some time. Crystal was the one was said to have made the call to separate.
Recall that the singer and Crystal announced their engagement in September 2015, during which they were expecting a child. Eventually, they got married in 2016, and in that same year had their first child Shaffer Smith Jr. Then, in 2018, they had another child, Roman Alexander-Raj Smith.
However, their relationship seems to have reached rock bottom according to several reports.
Evidence of issues in their relationship became glaring in the early parts of the year, during which he confirmed their relationship had “bumps and bruises”.
He said, “Headed into the new year [with] a RIDER. 2019 had its bumps and bruises, yea sure. But it’s not about the difficulty, it’s about [one’s] ability to realize when something is worth fighting for and [one’s] willingness to push thru to the potential greatness of a situation.
He continued saying, “There no such thing as perfect, a lesson we both have had to learn and lock-in. But perfect for each other is a real thing. And that’s you and me❤️ Big plans for 2020 baby! But regardless of what happens 2020 will be absolutely AMAZING so long as you’re by my side. I love you @itscrystalsmith ???????? #FlyMarriedShit.”
Clearly, the singer didn’t plan for what’s about to hit him and his family.
